I'll just be talking about PostgreSQL, since it's the only one i've been using, but it might also be possible with other Database Engines.

When you set a default on a field such as:

my_field = models.BooleanField(default=True)

This default is not applied to the PostgreSQL table:

           Table "public.app_mytable"
     Column      |           Type           | Modifiers 
 my_field        | boolean                  | not null

SQLAlchemy provides a server_default option.

It would be nice to have such an option in Django too.
